Road trip!!!

Over the Memorial Day weekend, Bethie and I went south east to Goblin Valley and Moab/Arches. We left on Saturday and went to Goblin Valley. It rained all day, so we were not able to walk down close to see the 'goblins'. We were very disappointed, but we didn't let the rain stop us from getting a little wet and seeing such an awesome place.
Sunday was a much better day weather wise. We spent at least 5 hours at Arches. Went on a few hikes, and drove through the whole park. Of all the arches in the park, we chose Double Arch as our favorite!
After arches we spent a little time in Moab. We walked around town and looked at a few shops and had dinner. There was a crazy storm come through around the time we were having dinner, so we were pretty glad we weren't stuck in Arches somewhere.

We had a great time and wished we had a couple of extra days to see other places like Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point and go back to goblin valley when its not so wet.
